RAUKANTEX laser edge – Total seamless integration

The innovative laser bonding technology makes it possible to bond the edgeband and board permanently, without seams and without adhesive and also to optimise the production process.
During the process of bonding the edgeband and board together, the usual adhesive component in the production equipment is replaced with a highly efficient laser. The polymer functional layer melts to the bottom of the coextruded edgeband and bonds the components together permanently. This makes it possible to completely do away with adhesive in edgeband processing and to create a permanently invisible and functional bond between the board and the edgeband.
This creates a high quality appearance of total seamless integration.
